  • 1st Radlett Scouts Adult Volunteers Needed

    The First Radlett Scout Group urgently need more adult volunteers. We are holding an open meeting for people to learn more about what is involved in being a volunteer and to meet some of the current Scout leaders and members of the Executive Committee, who will be able to answer questions, provide details about how the scout groups work, the different ways in which you can volunteer and give you further information about the rewards of being involved.

    Date: 4 February 2017

    Time: anytime between 11:00am – 12:00 pm

    Place: Scout Headquarters, Scrubbits Park Road

    Unless we can recruit new volunteers there is a real danger that some of the groups will close in the summer. If we get enough volunteers there is even a possibility that we could open another Cub, Beaver or Scout group. We have many children on the waiting so please do come along to find out more!

    If you are unable to come along on 4th February, but would like to know more please contact the Group Scout Leader, Jackie on info@1stradlettscouts.org.uk

  • Holocaust Memorial Day Event
    Thursday 26th January 2017 6pm, The Radlett Centre

    Hertsmere’s Holocaust Memorial Day Event takes place on 26th January this year, and the Scouts have been invited and asked to help. It is a time for everyone to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. On this day, we can honour the survivors of these regimes and challenge ourselves to use the lessons of their experience to inform our lives today.
     
    This is a time when we seek to learn the lessons of the past and to recognise that genocide does not just take place on its own, it is a steady process which can begin if discrimination, racism and hatred are not checked and prevented.  We are fortunate in the UK, we are not at risk of genocide.  However, discrimination has not ended, nor has the use of the language of hatred or exclusion.  There is still much to do to create a safer future and Holocaust Memorial Day is an opportunity to start this process.
     
    The day brings together the diverse strands of our communities to commemorate the day in our neighbourhoods.  This is a real demonstration of how lessons of the past can inform our lives today and ensure everyone works together to create a safer, better future.
     
    Local authorities are at the heart of the community and have a vital role to play in commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day.
     
    The Mayor, Cllr Pete Rutledge, would like to invite you to take part in Hertsmere’s Holocaust Memorial Day Event being held on Thursday 26th January in Radlett.  The event will begin with a candlelit parade from the Radlett Railway Station Car Park at 6.00pm, which will walk through Watling Street to The Radlett Centre, where a ceremony will take place to include videos, a speaker, speeches and musical performances.
     
    We have been asked to help set up and steward with the event starting at 5:15pm. The Scouts already been asked but if there are any more volunteers please let Jackie know on info@1stradlettscouts.org.uk.  If otherwise you would like to take part in the parade and/or the ceremony, please e-mail mayors.secretary@hertsmere.gov.uk stating: Full name, Address, Telephone number and E-mail address. Allocation will be made on a first come, first served basis.

  • January 2017 General News

    We said goodbye at the end of last year to Alan after 7 years as a leader. Thank you to him for his support over the years and all the other leaders for their continued support.
    We are still seeking more leaders as the Scout Leaders are intending to leave at the end of the summer term, which would mean the Scout troop may close if we do not get the support needed. Other sections will need more support and we still have a huge waiting list and would love to be able to offer Scouting to more children. We are planning a meeting for people interested in knowing more on Saturday 4 February. More details to follow.

    We have struggled to get support for a number of events in 2016, even getting parents willing to support our fundraising Quiz Night. This was a success but would have been better if more current parents had attended, rather than largely leaders and committee members and their friends. So here are the future / provisional dates to add to your diary.

    Dates for the diary in 2017

    Holocaust Memorial Event - Thurs 26 January
    Volunteering information gathering - Sat 4 February
    Saracens v Harlequins @ Wembley Fundraising Match - Sat 8 April
    St George's / Promise Day event - Sun 23 April
    Celebration Evening - Wed 26 April from 6 - 7.30 pm
    Elstree District AGM - Wed 7 June
    50th Anniversary of Kent Lodge (1st Radlett's Headquarters) - Sat 10 June (possible event - any volunteers?)
    Radlett Festival - Sun 11 June from 12 - 5 pm
    Group Evening - Tues 18 July
    Quiz Night - Fri 10 November
    Poppy Selling - Sat 11 November
    Remembrance Day Parade - Sun 12 November

    Future event to think about
    100th (at least) Anniversary of 1st Radlett Scouts - 16 May 2019

  • Remembrance Weekend Events 2016
    Poppy Selling - Saturday 11am-2pm, The War Memorial
    We will selling poppies in Watling Street in aid of Royal British Legion on Saturday 12th November. We will be based by the War Memorial.  We will be selling between 11am and 2pm, so Beavers, Cubs and Scouts could come for ½ hour – 1 hour slots in uniform. Anyone under 14 will need an adult with them, some leaders will be present but any parents who can help would be greatly appreciated.
    Remembrance Parade - Sunday 10:15am, The Radlett Centre
    Then on Sunday 13th November we will again be parading along Watling Street, with other Scouts and Guides to the War Memorial and take part in the Remembrance.  Please could your child attend in their uniform with a poppy, if cold please wear extra layers under the uniform so it can be seen, rather than hidden under a coat. We will meet at the Radlett Centre at 10:15 ready to march to the War Memorial at 10.30 where the service will begin at 10:45. This is an opportunity for us as a Scout group to be seen working in the community, so it would be good to see as many Beavers, Cubs and Scouts as possible.
